WOW! This is a TON of work! All of which we could have done without. BUT......we've PAINTED virtually EVERYTHING inside and out to make this a clean store setup and now its beginning to look like a retail space.
We owe a HUGE THANK YOU to some of our vendors who have stepped up and not even so much as blinked when we said "I need your help". It's certainly an eye opener when you find out who WILL and who WON"T stand by us in this industry and just might be an eye opener to a few other kite stores too.
Flying Wings Kites
In The Breeze
New Tech Kites

Kay Buesing (from the Kite Museum) for letting us rent the original Long Beach Kites location from when she and her husband Jim(now Deceased), were operating a kite store. GREAT LOCALE....corner of 101 and Bolstad beach approach.
All of whom have stepped up to the plate and more when asked for a helping hand.
And a few other very small accounts who handled this exceptionally well!
Oh...no.....I didn't forget Premier Kites, they don't qualify for a thank you, and that's about all I have to say about them.
As we get it all together we will keep you all informed. I BELIEVE and HOPE we will be open for business by this coming Friday, June 19th!
